The Donald proves his combover is real in quite a creepy way.

Forget the fact there are real issues to be discussed in a presidential campaign — Donald Trump can’t stop talking about his hair (oh, and making sexist remarks). First, he promised that if elected he would adopt a new hairstyle. And now he’s fed up with rumors his beloved combover is actually a toupee.

At a campaign stop in South Carolina on Thursday, Trump read from the front page of the New York Times where he’s called El Hombre del Peluquín, aka The Man of the Toupee. The republican nominee helpfully decided to scar a woman in the audience for life by inviting her up to check whether his hair was real or faux.

"You’re going to have to do an inspection," Trump told a woman he randomly selected. "This is getting crazy. Just real quick. We don’t want to mess it up too much because I do use hairspray." The woman excitedly took the stage to feel his orange-y locks and quickly verify that they are indeed his own.

Now that that’s settled, Trump can get back to dropping gems like this one, from his recent cover story on THR. "This is a guy that I know well, a good lobbyist, a tough cookie. He's not giving to me because he thinks I have the most beautiful hair he's ever seen." Surely no one’s ever accused the guy of low self-confidence.
